Birchmont Junior Championship: Punch-out birdie lifts Ohman


Braeden Ohman of Grand Forks won the Junior Championship Division of the Birchmont and he credits one hole for the victory.

"I didn't start off very well and he capitalized on my mistakes," Ohman, who defeated Dakotah Brunelle of Cass Lake 4-3, said. "But my birdie on No. 10 turned the match around."

Ohman lost the first two holes, clawed his way back to even after No. 8 but fell behind again after a double-bogey on No. 9.
